AULD LANG SYNE

A new year is upon us.  We start with a poem, then we have a reflection, and finally we rest awhile in the certainty of our future.  Mary mother of God pray for us.

CHRISTMAS

26Dec

THe hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.  These are the words of the Christmas Carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem."  Is it true that the hopes and fears of all the years are found in the manger in Bethlehem?

ROLE MODEL

23Dec

We encounter many role models through the advent season.  Many offer different aspects of the life of Faith: ISaiah is a voice of hope, John the Baptist shows us how to be relentless and Mary reveals to us a ready disposition to say yes no matter the cost.  But what about Joseph?  What can he shows us?

TWO SIZES TOO SMALL

21Dec

We recall the Grinch who tried to steal Christmas.  What was is ailment?  What kept him from entering into the Christmas Spirit and how does that differ from the Blessed Virgin Mary? Can the grinch have a conversion?  Can we?

DISGRACE

19Dec

How do we deal with the scrooges in our life this season?  Scrooge it is can infect anyone and everyone.  What is our role as we encounter these hearts that have hurt and pain?  What do we do when we meet the grinch on the street?  Who do we remove their disgrace?

GENEALOGY

17Dec

What is the role of the genealogy of Jesus?  Why read i?  How does it help us encounter grace in our life?  As we enter into December 17th we now direct our gaze to Bethlehem and we await the star that brightens the darkness and lights our path.  The star always shines and shines still for us as we look into the genealogy of Christ.

PATIENCE

16Dec

Patience!  How do we handle the reality of impatience in our life?  What do we do when patience doesn't work in our estimation?  Where can we look for guidance?

WHIMISICAL

13Dec

Today we celebrate the feast of St. Lucy,  young noble lady who refused to surrender her virginity, having consecrated herself to Christ.  We often times forget that virginity is a mark of faith.  How can Lucy guide us through the whimsical ways of our society?  Can being firm and taking a stance help us be flexible?

PERSONAL ENCOUNTER

11Dec

Jesus invites us to come to him to find rest for ourselves.  How do we experience that rest in our lives.  How do we open up to that encounter of Christ in our life.  Don't we all long for rest.
